    I was told by my service department that 09 Tacoma’s have a adaptive learn for the transmission…
    Is this true??

    Thanks.

    I'll have to go with "it's their excuse" for every time you have tranny issues. That way if you have a problem they can blame it on you for not teaching your truck the right way to drive.

    I would say its true. got about 9000 miles on truck now and dont notice the funny shifting i did when i first had the truck.

    The question is who has really done the adaptive learning ?????????

    Yeah, I noticed my 07 figures out when I'm going down a long hill and keep touching the brake, it will eventually shift down, well above the speed that it would normally, and into the gear that holds me back at the speed I was aiming for. Pretty cool, I guess, and might stop some flatlanders from smoking their brakes going down into the canyons. I'm pretty sure it does something on the uphills, too, but it's subtle.

    That's not the adaptive learning. That's the compression from the engine causing engine retarding braking.

    The adaptive learning is it going "Hey, he stomps on the pedal really hard at lights, for the first few gears let's keep the revs high and let this fucker go. Or, hey he's a pussy foot, let's shift low and give him increased fuel economy."
